Take a Minute (Literally) to Enter This Short Film Competition

filminute 2013

Filminute is back. The super short film competition is calling for 60-second-long entries from now through August 20th, so sketch out an idea, grab some friends and a camera, and tell your story quickly.

And if you think that a minute is frivolous, too short an amount of time to make an effective movie — that’s the challenge of it. To condense your story into something that can be experienced (but not necessarily digested) in a third of the time it takes to microwave a bag of popcorn.

Here are the details on how to enter (it’s open to everyone on the planet), and if you’re just looking for inspiration, here’s last year’s winner. No surprise, we’ll be featuring some of the entries on our site. Good luck to all!
